    Im still pretty new at this but I know that you are supposed to stop turning them for the last 3 days so they can get into position to hatch. For the last 3 days, you do NOT want to open the incubator or move the eggs.

    Not a problem at all! Good luck with your chicks! I am currently in lockdown myself. My chicks are due VERY EARLY Monday morning but like everyone has been telling me, they may come early or a few days late. I am such a nervous reck! Last time I candled my eggs, I had 29 out of 32 that showed life inside and I was going to candle them lastnight but got scared so I only candled 3. The 3 that I did were still moving around inside! I hope I have a successfully hatch [​IMG]
